    Scouts with meltaguns will take out any tank he keeps in the back. Until they get shot up the next turn, that is.

    Also, welcome to the forums.

    Try landspeeders instead of the predator.

    Me ~ Back from a long hiatus :ninja:

    Anyways, 3 Landspeeders w/ meltas are almost guaranteed to bust through armor, but their armor sucks, and they're expensive cash-wise.

    I recommend the scouts.

    You can take some Long Fangs. They are less expensive (cash wise) than buying 3 Landspeeders.

    You can always take a TLLC ML drednought; they are kind of pricy, but are a mobile weapns platform. The Melta speeders are probably more cost effective, but who doesn't like a dreadnought?

    I'd recommend Attack Bikes with Multi-Meltas normally, as the T5, 3+ Invulnerable Save (after turbo-boosting) and 2 wounds lets them survive pretty well (unless you roll as many 1s as I did in my last game against Tau)... but I don't even know if Space Wolves can take them to be honest.

    However I always find that my best anti-armour choice are Devastators (or Long Fangs in your case) with Lascannons or Missile Launchers - LCs may cost more than MLs but they do help worry your opponent more. I normally take 2 Lascannons and 2 Missile Launchers to help even out cost and make the squad look more varied, plus enough extra lives (read: bolter armed Marines) to keep them going long enough to get the all important 'Vehicle Destroyed' results. They are more survivable than the predator and can generally fire more shots.
